What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bensalem

I like the locked entry way to our apartments. We live close to a lot of different resaurants and stores

I like all the trees and that people can walk their dogs in the street. I like that the neighborhood is well lit and people usually have extra garage lights and yard lights on.

We have fishing ponds. I love our walking paths. Lots of wildlife. Not too far from the city and several parks are nearby

We're close Everyone looks out for each other even the ones that don't get along . We are there for each other

I really like that a good steakhouse, Italian and Mexican restaurant are within a short walking distance.

Favorite resaurant is a Greek Pizzaria that has fabulous pizza. Right around the corner is a very convenient group of stores including Kroger, gas stations and places to eat. We like going for pizza.
